New Jersey metal titans GOD FORBID will release their new album, "Earthsblood", on February 24 in North America and February 16 in Europe via Century Media Records.More video footage from the "Earthsblood" recording sessions can be viewed below (courtesy of MetalInjection.net). Also available is an audio sampler composed of sections of a few new tracks. "Earthsblood" (Century Media Records) was produced by Eric Rachel (ATREYU) with Christian Olde Wolbers (FEAR FACTORY, THREAT SIGNAL) handling all vocal tracking. The mixing was handled by Jens Bogren (OPETH, SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH). Regarding the album's title, Doc Coyle previously stated, "The title 'Earthsblood' came to me after watching the film 'There Will Be Blood'. What is the price of ambition? Is the blood of our bodies and the blood of the earth one and the same? With the current energy crisis, and its relation to many of the military conflicts worldwide, there has been a global, collective consciousness that has emerged in regards to the interdependence between humankind and the planet in which we inhabit. Coincidentally, the lyrics that Byron Davis and Dallas Coyle had written meshed with these revelations perfectly. This isn't a preachy, trendy, 'hip-to-be-green' album, nor is it a concept album. It's just an abstract observation." Recording sessions part 2:
